Ralf Rangnick now has worst win record of any Man Utd manager of post-Fergie era

Ralf Rangnick officially has the worst win percentage of any Manchester United manager since Sir Alex Ferguson left the club in 2013.

The German has been at the helm since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was sacked in November and has effectively been charged with steadying the ship until a permanent replacement is found in the summer.

But sadly for United the ship has barely been steadied at all, and Rangnick is now statistically the worst manager the club has had since Dave Sexton – who left in 1981.

Following Sunday's humiliating 4-1 defeat to Manchester City, United have won just eight of Rangnick's 18 games in charge, giving him a win record of just 44%.

By contrast, Solskjaer was sacked with a win record of 54%, while David Moyes and Louis van Gaal won 53% and 52% of their games in charge respectively.

Jose Mourinho tops the list after winning 58% of his matches, just shy of Ferguson's record of 59%, incidentally.

Rumours of dressing room unrest and infighting have been plaguing United for months, and while they may have only lost two league matches under Rangnick, their hopes of finishing in the top four are quickly diminishing.

They're now a point behind fourth-placed Arsenal, who have three games in hand, and could drop to sixth if Tottenham Hotspur win their outstanding fixtures.

Sure, United's campaign has more-or-less been about damage control since Christmas, but qualifying for next season's Champions League could be vital for securing a top manager in the summer.

PSG boss Mauricio Pochettino is still favourite for the job while Ajax's Erik ten Hag is also being considered, but Rangnick's inability to get United ticking won't exactly be selling the job well to either man.
